  2. Colossians 3:10. And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him.
    Ephesians 4:24. And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
  3. Genesis 1:28. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
